Spots for the manuscript critique, pitch, and query letter critique may fill completely during the first month or two of enrollment, so if you want to participate especially in those activities, register now. 

The pre-conference edit registration and submission deadline is August 13, 2022.

The deadline to register for a manuscript critique and submit your work for evaluation is October 3, 2022.

If you are doing a query letter critique and/or pitch activity(-ies) and will participate in-person at the hotel, you will bring copies of these query letters with you. If you will be participating virtually via Zoom–or the agent/editor you’ll be meeting with will be virtual–the deadline to submit your query letter file for the query letter critique activity and for your pitch is October 31, 2022, but you can rewrite and resubmit your pitch query letter by 10 pm Eastern on November 4, 2022 if you do a query letter critique earlier that day.

If you register for the November 4 “First-Page Critiques” workshop with Alex Finlay, the due date to submit your first page is October 21, 2022, but the sooner you submit your page, the more likely Alex is to be able to get to it during the workshop.

The deadline to register for the pitch, query letter critique, workshop, and both Q&A panels is November 3, 2022 at 6 pm Eastern, but most of these activities might be filled long before then. Don’t delay your registration if you want to participate.

In all cases, payment is due during the registration process. If you fail to pay, you will not be included on the registration list. Also, you must complete the registration and payment process within 60 minutes of starting it, or your registration will not be recorded.

Please see the Refund Policy for deadlines to cancel your registration for any activity in order to receive a partial refund.
